Yes, move up and to the right.
All y’all are learning ENGR 145, and I congratulate you on that. You’ve mastered the two videos. You’ve mastered Four Steps to the Epiphany. But you’re glossing over sales and selling.

Rehearse. Rehearse your sales calls before you execute a tech sales, sales call #Practice
Move up and to the right on the Tech Expertise + sales skill chart. Engineering knowledge on the Y-axis. Sales and promotion ability on the X-Axis.
Specifically rehearse the language of promotion by practicing
– Internal escrow dialog
– one way letter of intent syntax
Syntax is a complicated word for string of words. It will help you reduce startup sales friction. Btw, I saw some kids on a sales call at Coupa and my goodness…, it was like watching a train slowly wreck.
